Historian Podcaster – Scott Rank Ep46

What do you do when your job prospects look bleak? Create your own job of course. Scott Rank talks about how he has carved out a career as a historian by way of podcasting and e-books. Now host of the History Unplugged podcast Scott has taken a very unique road into making a career as a historian after getting his Ph.D from Central European University in Budapest Hungary in 2015. He explains why he didn’t follow a more traditional route, how he made being a podcaster a full time job and how he researches such topics “Who had the worst flatulence in history?” in episode 92. Scott was also kind enough to answer some of my poorly worded history questions!

Advocate/Attorney Rabia Chaudry Ep5

Advocate, attorney, podcast host, social media voice, author, narrator, countering violent extremism expert, cat lady and all around interesting woman Rabia Chaudry is on the show. Most people were first introduced to Rabia by the podcast Serial as the woman who originally brought the case to Sarah Koenig who went on to turn the story of Adnan Syed into an international sensation. Rabia though had been fighting the good fight for both Adnan and others long before Serial. We talk about how she got started as an attorney and then advocate, how you make all the things she does into a paying career, what her relationship with Serial was like, what went into writing the book Adnan’s Story, Adnan himself and what her future has in store. Rabia is very open about her career as an advocate and how she has gone about making living from it and I think it’s a must listen for anyone interested in exploring a similar path.

You can find more about Rabia at www.rabiachaudry.com  follow her on twitter @rabiasquared and listen to her podcast Undisclosed. Also I highly recommend reading the book she wrote Adnan’s Story that includes letters from Adnan explaining more of his side of the story and much more about how the case originally went down, what it was like to be on the other side of Serial and where the investigation of the case has gone. You can get the book anywhere you get books and I highly recommend the audio version read by Rabia. Lastly you can follow one of the great loves of Rabia’s life Sir Mr. Bean on his facebook page.  Mr. Beans is very a very important cat since he is basically the godcat of Buster Bedell.
